Program Information:
Have you ever thought of studying business in China but worried that your Mandarin wasn’t good enough? On the Semester in China program, you can relax. We’ve found a university in China where all students, both international and Chinese, must pass an English proficiency test to get in, so you can have a full immersion experience while you’re still working on your Mandarin!

Get excited about:

  • Life in Beijing – Living in the capital of China has tons of perks! A great public transportation system, all kinds of Chinese and international food, the most amazing markets you can imagine . . . You’ll never be without something to do.

Academics:
Semester in China includes 2 semesters running from September to December and from January/February to June. Because the spring semester falls after the Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year), the start dates may vary as much as 3 weeks from year to year. With the exception of language courses, you may take all of your courses in English. As a CIS student, you will take 6 credits of Chinese-language study, plus 2 or 3 electives (6 or 9 US credits). Electives are available in the following subjects: Economics, Business, and International Studies, among others.
